    Hey Tony!

    You have me reminising and I found this reference - ttylinux/ChangeLog-ws-x86_64 at master;

    Version 3.3, Sun Oct 26 18:32:34 CET 2003
    - recompiled glibc with -Os, saves 38 kb of space
    - use dhcpcd -k to shutdown dhcpcd, instead of killall (thanks
    to Maurice Kinal <tothings@minimalinux.org>
    - updated lilo to 22.5.8
    - fix /etc/rc.d/rc.functions never reporting "failed"

    A good guess on my part about the year 2003-ish. :-)

    I still use the username tothings to do experimental stuff and build toolchains
    but that particular address is long since defunct. I started minimalinux.org just to give ttylinux a home as it's creator had just gotten his masters and was losing his space on the university server.

    Those were the days...

    Life is good,
    Maurice

    Cool. My name appears in the Changelog of at least one piece of software as a key alpha and beta tester. I had fun chasing bugs in that package because I was always pushing the boundaries, making it do unusual things, and working with the developer to help him tweak his code. :)
